It's a Bond film, they've always been a bit over the top and daft at times. Casino Royale and Quantum Of Solace weren't fun films to watch, they were so gritty and horrible. Skyfall brought back the humour, over the top action scenes, the bad guys island lair. I thought the film was brilliant.
I agree. Skyfall remembered it was a James Bond movie and actually wanted to be fun to watch.
Don't know what the point of the reboot was in the end. With all these mentions of the history of the Bond franchise (also the Goldfinger homage in QoS) it has rendered it pointless.
